By John Adrian Bondy, U.S.R. Murty

Dirt jacket notes: "Graph thought is more and more getting used to version occasions coming up within the technologies. this article, as well as treating the elemental fabric in a few intensity, encompasses a big variety of purposes, either to real-world difficulties and to different branches of arithmetic. Care has been taken to choose functions which really utilize conception, and don't basically hire the language of graphs. one of the issues incorporated are connectivity, Euler excursions and Hamilton cycles, matchings, coloring difficulties, planarity and community flows. uncomplicated new proofs of theorems of Brooks, Chvatal, Tutte and Vizing are offered. rigidity is laid, every time attainable, on confident equipment of facts, and a number of other effective algorithms are defined. the numerous illustrations and workouts are complemented by means of a couple of striking positive aspects, tricks to more durable workouts, a variety of attention-grabbing graphs with certain homes, and a listing of 50 unsolved difficulties. The textual content has built from classes given by means of the authors on the collage of Waterloo, Ontario, and is meant as an creation to graph idea for senior arithmetic undergraduates and graduates. it's going to even be of curiosity to scholars and employees in operations study, laptop technology and a few branches of engineering."
